Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: The 2010 Highlander's rear liftgate thinks it's open when it's closed and then once it's actually open, you might not be able to shut it again. Remember folks, if your liftgate is stuck open for more than 4 hours, consult your mechanic.

2010 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 082010

Highlander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 208 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Toyota Highlander equipped with toyo A20 tires (na), size 245/55/R19. The contact stated that when receiving the vehicle, it swayed to the side it was turned. The contact called the tire manufacturer who offered no assistance and referred him to the vehicle manufacturer. The dealer stated that the brand of the tires was not compatible with weight of the vehicle. The failure mileage was 208. The consumer stated when going around curves, the vehicle would lean into the corner curve more than normal, which would cause the consumer to forcibly turn the steering wheel to bring the vehicle back into the center of the lane. The consumer believed the sidewalls of the tires were too soft, which allowed the vehicle to roll sideways because of its weight, into the corners and curves of the roadway. The consumer stated due to safety concerns, he purchased a new heavier set of tires. Updated evoq 03/04/11

  • 2,950 miles
The right rear tire on a 2010 Toyota Highlander failed. It went completely flat overnight. I have not found any evidence of a foreign object lodged in the tire. When I tried to add air, I could hear it hissing out. Not clear if it was a puncture, tire crack or some other tire failure. I have not yet taken it to a dealer, but plan to do so. The vehicle had only 2,950 miles on it. The tire was a toyo open country A-20.
